Knight, William E.; Moore, Michael E.; Coperthwaite, Corby A.
Research in Higher Education, v38 n4 p419-33 Aug 1997
A study investigated the knowledge and skills of college and university institutional researchers (n=601) in relation to their perceptions of the effectiveness of their work. Analysis found that relationships between background characteristics, knowledge and skills in institutional research, and perceptions of effectiveness were minimal. Institutional culture, expectations, and leaders' personalities are suggested as alternative predictors of effectiveness. (Author/MSE)
